Age 67, of Edgewood, PA, passed away Saturday, February 17, 2018, after a courageous battle with Esophageal Cancer. Born November 1, 1950, in Pittsburgh, PA, John graduated from Edgewood High School in 1968 and obtained a BA in Professional and Creative Writing from Carnegie Mellon University. Son of the late Robert and Jeanne Slack; John is survived by his sister, Carolyn Petrovic (Jim); brother, Tom Slack (Kelly); nephews, Greg and Chris Petrovic; and niece, Selena Slack. John was a free spirit who had a passion for music, writing, and deep philosophical beliefs. Growing up inspired by his favorite band, The Rascals, John played Hammond organ, sang in many bands, and composed and performed his original songs. He used his writing skills to produce scripts for film, and his natural talent for acting to appear in scenes for local Hollywood productions. A true sports fan, John never lacked opinion on the managers of Pittsburgh teams. He will be remembered as an engaging personality with a sharp wit, a brilliant sense of humor, and the ability to charm everyone he met. The family plans to honor John with a celebration of his life; details will be posted to Facebook soon.
